Transportation Research Group


  • About us

  • The Transportation Research Group (TRG) has research links across the University, and with other groups in the UK and overseas.

  • Major activities relate to all aspects of the development, application and understanding of the impacts of a wide range of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)

  • Principal sponsoring bodies include:

  • European Commission (EC)

  • Department for Transport (DfT)

  • Transport Research Laboratory (TRL)

  • Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)

  • Transport for London (TfL)

Research Emphasis / Themes

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Human Factors

We view transport as a socio-technical system with the potential to deliver sustainability










Economic competitiveness, Climate change,

Safety, security and health, Quality of life,

Equality of Opportunity.




Informing the analysis, planning and design of national infrastructure, through the development and demonstration of new

decision support tools, and working with partners in government and industry

Aims to measure and evaluate the changes in travel, physical activity and carbon emissions related to Sustrans' “Connect2” programme

Seeking a step-change improvement in the engineering, economic and environmental performance of railway track making it fit for a 21st century railway, by developing new techniques for its design, construction and maintenance.

Site monitoring of the Itchen Boardwalk,

Southampton, as part of the iConnect Survey

Our Research

Environment / Sustainability

Walking and Cycling

Public Transport Operations

Traffic Management

Freight and Goods Movement

Intelligent Transport Systems


Human Factors



A 3-year EU-funded project, comprising seven innovative cutting edge urban demonstrations, showcasing improved urban-interurban freight operations in Europe

Contributing to defining research requirements for traffic modelling, traffic optimisation and control, positioning and

communications systems,

multi-modal user networks

and evaluation




Understanding the extent to which behavioural change in transport habits and practices can be facilitated through the creation of a new form of ‘transport network’, based on extending social networking principles to transport users and their individual vehicles


Intelligent Road Safety”

“All Conditions Operations and Innovative Cockpit Infrastructure”

Human Factors on the Flight Deck

The project aims at demonstrating and evaluating co-operative systems which are based on road-vehicle communication, to provide infrastructure, vehicles and traffic operators with technical intelligence

TRG Facilities

SUDS (Southampton University Driving Simulator) is an interactive driving simulator with three driving displays and 135 degree driver field-of-view, using in-vehicle driving controls with high-resolution digital sensors and speed-sensitive steering feel

The TRG Instrumented Vehicle is equipped with a range of sensors, enabling tests and trials to be carried out in real environments on the road, with safety tests being performed on a private test track
